Rodman Reservoir Pictures
Rodman Reservoir is legendary for the number of trophy bass it has produced over the years ever since it was created. It is consistently ranked with the state of Florida as one of the top ten best bass lakes in the country. You can count on fishing under floating cover on a trip to this area. There are a lot of ‘dollar weeds’ and water hyacinths here where bass use to surprise unsuspecting prey. You also will be fishing around eel grass, hydrilla, lily pads. Rodman Reservoir and the Ocklawaha River is always a treat to fish. It is a beautiful waterway that produces big fish each and every year.
Just recently, a bass caught in Rodman gave the Official State record a scare. The fish weighed in at 17.2 lbs. and had a length of 29.75 inches coming up just short of the record fish weighing in at 17.27 pounds. Now that’s a huge bass. I believe that the new state record will come out of either Rodman, Kissimmee Chain or possibly Lake Okeechobee which are all known for trophy largemouth bass. Multiple day fishing trips booked for Rodman Reservoir and Ocklawaha are generally live bait fishing trips where we use wild river shiners. However, artificial fishing can also be incorporated into the trip.
